comparisons adjusted for inflation (CPI)

The Mentoring Matching Grants program funds competitive grants to public and private mentoring programs that connect young people with adult mentors. Quality mentoring is a common youth development strategy, supporting young people in becoming engaged members of their community. Mentoring programs can help youth improve self-confidence, self-esteem, academic perseverance, and achievement.

Grants are administered by the Mass Mentoring Partnership, which also partners with the Massachusetts Service Alliance to strengthen mentoring programs across the state. State dollars must be matched 1 to 1 by funds from the agencies receiving grants. Mentoring Matching Grants are targeted towards expanding mentoring opportunities, either by starting new programs or growing existing ones.

In FY 2015, Mentoring Matching Grants funding was sufficient to award grants to 31 mentoring programs, which matched over 1300 youth with mentors.
